Pickett students receive TTU awards

COOKEVILLE - Tennessee Tech University’s 33rd Annual College of Business Scholarships and Awards Banquet included honors for two Pickett County students who received a scholarship from the College of Business Board of Trustees.
Kacee Mitchell received the Johnnie Keisling Annual Scholarship and the Welch Bowling Endowed Scholarship. Kacee is junior finance major at TTU.
Angela Warden received the Eldon Leslie Endowed Scholarship. She is a freshman basic business major at TTU.
These scholarships are awarded annually and are open to all undergraduate business students.
Faculty, business alumni, scholarship donors, scholarship recipients and their families packed the Multipurpose Room of the Roaden University Center as 130 students received scholarships totaling almost $150,000. Twenty-four honor students (those maintaining a 4.0 grade point average) were recognized for their scholastic achievements.
“We are proud of this outstanding group of students,” said Mark Stephens, interim dean of the College of Business. “We are also extremely pleased with the support we receive from businesses and alumni in supplying the private funds for scholarships. These awards help us attract high-quality students to the university.”
The College of Business and its accounting program are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, making it among the less than 5 percent of business programs worldwide to hold this distinction.
